Since moving, we’ve realized the insane number of details that comprise “a life”: where is a good dry cleaner in  our new neighborhood, what to use for hooks for towels until we find ones we like?…it is endless. We’d bought a nice-looking toilet roll holder only to discover to discover that it would be “a project” – time we don’t have – to install on our sheetrock wall. So we devised one out of…rocks that we’d brought from the other apartment. (We’d hauled them from the beach years ago because they are so incredibly useful and wonderful to look at: a sculptural bit of nature.)

We like the suprising, elemental touch in our spare modern bathroom so much we’re thinking of keeping it: makeshift becoming the happy, possible permanent, solution.
